2 Peter 3:18
But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
 
Acts 17:11
These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
Romans 6:23
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
 
In this scripture, Paul makes it clear, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that sin brings death. He uses the word "wages" indicating that there is a price to be paid for living a sinful life: Death. He contrasts that with the alternative: eternal life. In this small scripture, Paul lays out the basic decision all people must face. Either we sin and die or we don’t sin and have eternal life. It’s a simple choice, really. It’s amazing that so many people still hesitate. 

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
